At the point of prepping this post, summer is still mid-stutter, the skies are looking grey, albeit a very attractive shade of my favourite hue and I’m actually contemplating socks. Socks I tell you!
Thankfully July, August and September still stretch ahead and in true optimistic mindset, I’m hoping for time spent at the beach on UK shores, a spot of al fresco dining and evenings spent in the garden. I’m also pinning all my summer hopes on one week in Majorca in August. No pressure on the family holiday to deliver then.
In the meantime, I’ll keep drawing on the memories of the beautiful places I visited whilst sailing around the mediterranean aboard the uber stylish Europa 2 at the end of May. Thankfully, the bright blues of Santorini and the darkest greys of Mount Etna in Sicily through to the beige and terracotta palettes of Palermo are more than enough to last me until August and beyond.
In order of our ports of call, here are a few postcard memories from that amazing cruise…
Mount Etna, Sicily
Having had just a taster of each of these wonderful places as part of my first ever cruise experience, I would happily revisit all of them again in a heartbeat and take plenty of time to explore each one.
But for now I’ll come back to this post once in a while and scroll through these colourful postcard memories as a happy reminder of that fantastic trip!
